Re: [IPu] Flu Shot ?



Hi Janette

Well down here in the freezing South we've had lots of flu going around, and 
as we've been hit ourselves I can say it was *definitely* flu - days of high 
fever and aches and pains and shivers and NO energy. I came down with it the 
Monday before last and today is probably the first day I've felt anything 
approaching normal.  We didn't eat a proper meal for over a week as we 
didn't feel up to cooking or eating anything substantial, we all just 
survived on toast, soup, Weetbix and yogurt.  My husband ALWAYS has 'flu' 
but this time I can confirm he wasn't exaggerating!

Ryan funnily enough bounced back the quickest although he's still harbouring 
a cough.  We got him the flu jab the first year he was diagnosed but haven't 
since, I thought about it this year but he was wildly unenthusiastic and we 
never quite managed it.  Dunno if I would bother next year, we had a few 
hairy days but the pump made all the difference, and it's the first time 
we've had flu in the house since he was born.
